Crownplace Brands Ltd, of Dalton, Ohio announced on August 23, they were recalling 500 units of Crownplace Brands’ Aladdin MaxBrite kerosene lamp burners due increased danger of burns or fire. The burner can detach from the rest of the product due to a defect from the burner’s thread.
Product description: The burners are bronze, four inches tall, and the diameter is three inches. The burner thread, which poses the risk, is just over a quarter of an inch long. The brand name “Aladdin MAXBrite500” is labeled on the knob. The specific patent number is 3551086 and the product would’ve been sold at hardware stores nationwide or could be purchased through Amazon between July of this year and last. The lamp burners are detachable and would’ve been sold separately.
There has been one report of injury from the defect. Crownplace Brands Ltd has asked their customers immediately stop using their old burners and contact them for a free replacement.
